The guy who used maps to stitch a whole big map out is respect,that takes a lot of work just travelling the whole Minecraft map,and eventually coming back to that area,and even,placing the map one by one,at the right order...

I feel this. I have a 5x5 world locator map lv 4 in my main base. Took 3 weeks to get it done.

Map art take much longer time, since you need to place every block by yourself

1:14 i actually made something very similar to that on a server im in. me and my friends love the band animal collective so me and another friend of mine built a map art of the album merriweather post pavillion which is pretty much the same pattern shown but in a different scale. it had the visual effect! it was super cool and reminds me how worth it doing all that in survival is.

80% of these illusions can just be done with immersive portals, heck, he even used that mod for one of them.

Ya for the small house that looks bigger in the inside is a thing you can use mods to do it I think you need the immersive portals or there's a mod for the small house that's huge on the inside but with the portals build a house very far away or in the end or nether and set the portal up so you go into the bigger house it's very weird

Idea: Using the void illusion (The one with the black blocks) and a redstone timer you can make the illusion of a monster blinking and staring at you
Aluzky 6 months ago
What would be clever is to light a big nether portal and also build behind it a copy of what is in the nether. So it looks like you got into the nether from one side, and also on the nether build a copy of the main world. Both facing a wall. And then build inside the walk the look of the other world. (though there is already a mod that shows the actual world on the other side)
Local Orel Fan

but youd have to make the portal effect invisible for it to work then

For the aether portal Just use barrier void blocks (obtained through commands)So it doesn't despawn When you leave the game

the “walk through the door glitch” has been removed since 1,19,2 update, so if you close the door while you,re at the door what you closed, it will pushes you

I like how he says "barely cut it" with the beacon despite still keeping 80% of the netherite blocks

I don’t know if this works on Java but you can just do a 3x3 square of something for a beacon and it still works

5:04 for an even better illusion, use cpmmand blocks to make it seem like you’re falling a long way and structure blocks with zoomed in maps to make it actually seem like your falling if you decide to jump in Edit: I made one typo and i have 61 replies correcting me wtf

I guess you could say that that house is about drive, and also about power. I would like to assume that it stays hungry, yet it devours. I like to believe that it also puts in the work AND the hours, along with taking what's ours.

Tip: If you want to make a Aither Portal in Minecraft just use barrier blocks along the front and back of the portal, put water and you have your 2012 childhood dream

2:42 I once had something similar... One time it was kinda laggy on the server and when I clicked the bed, it made me do the crawling animation... I went to get my friends help but he didn't see me until I punched him so I went to get another friend's help but I couldn't go up the stairs, and a few seconds after that I teleported to my bed.

@Just somebody key word: shoddily pretend. The things you said aren’t even the only red flags. Map arts don’t change the ground particles when u sprint, right clicking on it makes the map art change, you have a weaker effect from the beacon, and if anyone so much as misclicks the map arts fall off

Hey skip. I have a little thing that can spice up a party room in Minecraft. If you build a repeateting machine with redstone and place a dispenser and fill it with fireworks. Then make the floor slabs (the slab must be the upper side and not have the lower side) and then boom activate the redstone reapeating machine and there you have it. A little thing just to build for fun. I don’t care if this doesn’t get in a vidio I’m just glad that I could come up with that and suggest it to you.
